SIGMA's fax-in scoring system combines the easy administration of tests using test booklets and paper answer forms, with rapid scoring and report generation. For tests with short reports, reports are returned within 15 minutes. Longer reports are returned by courier.
If there are too many missing or improperly recorded responses, SIGMA will not be able to score the test. Please ensure that applicants understand the test instructions, and check that applicants have completed the assessment before they leave.
If this happens, contact us immediately. You will need to order more sheets. Do not use photocopies of answer sheets, or reuse answer sheets for different candidates. This will result in duplicate serial number rejection errors.
If a fax machine produces "track marks", this will often interfere with SIGMA's scoring mechanism. When either light or dark marks appear on the incoming fax transmission, the automatic fax-in scoring mechanism will misread responses, often resulting in an unscorable report. One way to check your fax machine for scanning problems is to copy a page with text using the fax machine, then examine it for missing or dark lines. SIGMA can also provide you with 'test' pages that you can fax to the toll-free fax-in scoring number prior to your testing dates. To reduce this error, our technical support staff will examine these test faxes and notify you if there is a problem. Please ensure your name and phone number are indicated in the name box.
